I have new clients who took over a local restaurant in November. on 10 November they applied for a UTR for their partnership. It still has not come, this means we cannot properly register for an employer reference and issue payslips.
They have been quoted 10 January !!! Two bloody months to issue a 10 digit number, how hard can it effing be HMRC?
Meanwhile I'll be setting up the payslips using my own firm's employer reference and AO reference in order to issue them properly, but not able to submit this stuff on RTI obviously until the proper stuff is in place.
This utter drivel from HMRC really sticks in the throat when they are trying to put a gun to everyone's heads to go at 100mph on Making Tax Digital. Yes we have to go at 100mph, but as per usual HMRC have only two speeds - dead slow and dead stop!
